If we all agreed that a perpetual deficit for the federal government is not sustainable, and we believed that higher taxation were in fact not politically possible, how then, does one propose that we balance the federal budget without cutting aid programs? Could one argue that what seems cruel to the people of today was in some way less cruel to the generations that come after us?
